Many homes for sale in Spicewood are listed in the millions and offer waterfront or water view lots.

Spicewood’s first post office opened in 1899, and the town likely was named for the Spicewood (Sassafras) timber on nearby Little Cypress Creek. Some residents claim direct lineage from 19th century settlers, with land deeds originating from the Republic of Texas and Spanish land grants. Nearby small communities utilized the Spicewood post office, but as they declined in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, many residents turned to Spicewood as the focus of community life. Today, Spicewood is home to about 10,000 residents.
